This Thursday, April 12, 2018  at 6 pm, please join the Summerville community at the Summerville Town Council Meeting at  200 S. Main St., Third Floor for the reading of the Holocaust  Proclamation. The proclamation reading will be followed by a silent walk to the Summerville Museum Saul Alexander Garden at 100 E. Doty St. where there will be a candlelighting ceremony. Rabbi Greg Kanter from KKBE Synagogue and others will address the group and families and friends of Holocaust victims are invited to light memorial candles and tell their stories.

The Eastern European Holocaust was the catastrophic murder of eleven million human beings between 1938 and 1945. Six million of those victims were Jewish. Five million others were persecuted for their religious beliefs, political views, sexual orientation, or physical and mental disabilities. The pledge is that none of these victims be forgotten. The lesson is that so long as any are persecuted, no one is free.

The Mission of the REMEMBER Program for Holocaust and Genocide Awareness is to:

  • Educate about the horrors of the Holocaust
  • Promote the concept of mutual respect for all peoples
  • Create goodwill and build community amongst all ethnicities in the Tri County area
  • Inspire people to take a stand for what is right
